Presumptive Senate President's Partner Moving To Florida

Senate Majority Leader Stanley Rosenberg's partner has been reassigned to his public relations company's Florida office after weeks of scrutiny about his relationship with the presumptive state senate president.

The Boston Globe reports that Bryon Hefner will be relocating to Florida and working with clients for Regan Communications Group in that region. Hefner, who joined the firm in May, had allegedly mocked outgoing Sen. President Therese Murray on Twitter and boasted about his influence in the legislature.

Rosenberg, a Democrat from Amherst, has lived with Hefner since 2009. The Globe reported Saturday that Hefner and Rosenberg attended a state government conference on St. Thomas after the senator had apparently assured co-workers that he was keeping his relationship and work separate.
